    Default Should I buy? I want to root to run android

    Hey all,
    Been browsing the forums a bit,
    quick question want all your opinions, good or bad,

    Looking to buy this phone (somebody selling it for $300 Verizon)
    I've been waiting for news on the Nexus 6, but I saw this offer for $300, I know it won't last, so
    wanted your opinion.
    Is it easy to root? I would like to run google now launcher and the ok google, that's my main gripes about it.

    Should I swoop in on this deal?

    Root is not needed to run the Google launcher. And if you want the voice commands to wake the device into Google Now, that is currently available without the Google launcher. The settings are in Google Now that allow the Ok Google voice command wake form the lock screen and or any screen if you choose.

    Ohhh okay, sorry for my misinformation, good to know thanks

    Now if only i can get the seller to reply to me...

    you think it's worth it or to wait for nexus 6? I know it's just rumours, but still...

    A G3 for $300? I'd proceed w/caution. Caveat emptor.

    Meet at sore and have your carrier activate phone before paying.

    I concur.

    I am polymerized tree sap and you are an inorganic adhesive, so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off me, returns on its original trajectory and adheres to you.

    I recommend getting the ESN from the person and give Verizon a call to look it up. They will tell you if it's blacklisted or valid to activate.

    And yes, rooting this phone is easy and I highly recommend it.

    Getting the LG G3 for $300 is a steal, but be careful.

    And you could play the waiting game forever, just go for it. But like I said, be careful.

    However LG has a pretty bad track record for updates so you may need to root it in an year and install a Custom ROM or something to get the latest OS, but it's all good right now.

    Prety bad? They will upgrade the g2 for Android L!

    I wouldn't call it bad - it's better like any other smartphone serie right now. That's why I bought it instead of a Nexus device.

    This... And if the seller refuses, there is a high probability that it's stolen.
